just went through the same thing myself but with 5inch on wagon. I went superior uppercontrol arms only because they the only ones that have a bent arm to clear an aux fuel tank and the length for a 4 inch lift.
Got snake racing lower adjustables mainly because of price compaired with superior and they were a lot quicker to post then superior even from sydney to north of brisbane. make sure your control arms come with bushes or thats more money gone, i don't think hobzees have them. for panhard rods i got them off ebay, sellers name was kingswood country, they sell as a pair (adjustable)and seem very strong but time will tell, much cheaper, think they were $320 a pair but not sure

hope that helps
Brent

This is one of the reasons I posted that I would no longer sell product to Forum members. Offered F&R at $185 each to jakeyp, and never heard another word.............

yeah sorry blu, that was just on a month ago when u offered and yeah i prob should have got back to u and said i didn have cash at that stage for them yet but i didn. since then u have stated that u dont want to sell to forum members
"I have decided that I will only supply customers from my local area, as it is not reasonable to use this Forum to gain an advantage over other dealers within my industry."
so im doing what you said and not using you to buy from.
sorry blu-125

I would go with superior for just about everything. Good quality gear, mainly cheaper than Snake Racing which has pretty much the same stuff just painted blue(but you do get a free stubby holder), and great postage time. All express posted.
Forget Hobzee's as not the same quality and can be waiting months for delivery.
